Qadiriyya in Gambia


Central mosque in Banjul, Gambia.

Sunni Muslims constitute more than 90 percent of the population of the Gambia. The vast majority are Malkite Sufis, of which the main orders represented are Tijaniyah, Qadiriyah, Muridiyah, and Sufi orders pray together at common mosques. A small percentage of Muslims, predominantly immigrants from South Asia, do not ascribe to any traditional Islamic school of thought.
